The trajectory prediction of 3.11 Tsunami Debris

April 9, 2012

Ministry of the Environment has developed simulation models to predict the trajectory of 3.11 Tsunami Debris.
The findings from the simulation and validation indicated that most of 3.11 Tsunami Debris would drift toward the east across the Pacific Ocean passing by the north of Hawaii Islands. Then, the Debris would start reaching the west coast of the U.S around October 2012.
Considering the results of the prediction, Government of Japan will continue to share information and have consultations with related countries and institutions, and deliberate the additional actions.
